Face masks and gloves have become standard outerwear. These days, you’re probably hyperaware of air pollutants, being even more cautious about what you’re bringing into your home. But what about the particles that floated around in your home before social distancing? To keep from breathing in stale, polluted air, you might be plotting to clean your air vents, but the task may not be as simple as you were imagining.
There isn’t much that can beat the sweltering heat of summer better than a good air-conditioned house. During the end of a frigid winter and throughout the mild spring it’s easy to forget that the air conditioner unit will likely be on for the majority of every day in just a few weeks, and that’s just to keep things comfortable! More than half of your energy bill usually goes to the air conditioner alone on those hot summer days.
Having your air conditioner break down in a sweltering summer is miserable, and alternatively, your heater failing in frigid winter is a nightmare in its own right. There is something worse than having to live in the pool to cool off, or putting on your third sweatshirt to stay warm. That’s being at the mercy of an unreliable, unprofessional, or downright clueless HVAC technician while they’re trying to fix the problem.
